Pipework Restoration

We were recently approached by a Customer working on a UK water treatment site to restore several pieces of degraded pipework which had been removed from a Water Board site. So in conjunction with our coating specialist Northpoint Ltd we carried out the following pipework restoration works.


For the pipework restoration each pipe was shot blasted in the booth, taking a little longer than usual due to the build up of rust over the years. They were then preheated in the oven and dipped in the fluidised bed. At over 3m in length, the pipes were turned over by the crane and double dipped ( dipped from each end to create full coverage). The pipes were then left to cool and remedial work carried out before being banded together and prepared for collection from the customer.
